Do Tangs go Missing?

My Tang was out last night and fine. Now today I can't find him any where. I looked where he sleeps nope not there. I looked all over with out moving the rocks. Should I be worried about him or do they come up missing for a day or to? He is not on the Filters I checked all that.

Oddly enough my yellow tang is missing today too. Tangs are known swimmers and mine are always out and into everything so yes I would be and am worried. I know I have a mantis so traps are coming out.

Please post your water parameters with good test kits (Ammo, nitrite, nitrate, SG, pH). Do you have any corals in your system? Do you have a QT tank at the ready? Does he have any marks on his body? How do his gills look? Is he breathing rapidly? When was the last time you saw him eat? What do you feed him? How does his belly look (pinched, or good and round)? When was the last time you saw him swimming and acting normally?

Those are the off the top of my head questions. Hopefully we'll learn something from that and will be able to better guide you.

Ammo? Nitrite? Nitrate? No sugar spots? No abrasions? How long have you had him? How did you acclimate him? How long has your tank been setup?
